BBVA and Google today announced the launch of Android Pay in Spain. This payment system will allow BBVA customers to use their Visa and MasterCard cards, in order to pay with their mobile phones.

Android Pay will be operational in the more than one million businesses in Spain with contactless technology. BBVA is the first bank to give its customers the possibility of paying with Android Pay in Spain.

As part of a collaboration agreement aimed at developing payment solutions worldwide, BBVA and Google go a step further with the official launch of Android Pay in the Spanish market.

BBVA thus increases the mobile payment services it has offered its customers for more than three years with BBVA Wallet, making BBVA cards compatible with Android Pay.

Antonio Macías, Strategy and Transformation Director at BBVA Spain’s Payments Systems and Consumer Loan Area, said that: “The agreement with Android Pay seeks to make it easier for customers to pay with their cell phones - a device that is being used more and more.”

Currently, 90% of the cell phones in the market use Android technology, meaning that this system will allow many BBVA customers to pay with their smartphones. In addition to using BBVA Wallet for payments, the bank’s customers can now pay with their cell phones and Android Pay both in stores, websites and merchants’ apps.
